Evers calls for self-imposed lockdown as COVID-19 cases surge in Wisconsin!

More at link....


Thank you, Governor Evers!

Hey Wisconsin - WTF??
Today 5262 new Covid19 cases with a 26% test positivity rate.
What part of the message, "mask-up, stay home, and social distance," don't you understand?

Name something Donald Trump ruined for you....I'll go first

Sleep.....I haven’t slept well for almost 4 years!

If 2020 were a Math Problem....give it your best shot, du!

Our last ditch effort down the homestretch...Coronavirus style.

Dear Postcarders,

We have reached our goal, 15,000 postcards sent to our Sun Prairie, Dane County and Beaver Dam neighbors – encouraging them to vote early, vote blue for Melissa Sargent and Joe Biden and to get involved. Together we are working for the change our country so desperately needs. Thank you for your valiant efforts. I haven’t added up the numbers yet but well over 100 of us participated in this project. I have been proud to work with you all on this project.

We have one last small but extremely important opportunity. We can probably all identify one, two or three people in our circles of relationships – particularly our outer circles – who we know might not vote or are still (unbelievably) undecided or leaning to a third-party candidate. Postcard packets containing 2 cards and two stamps will be on Colleen’s front porch. Pick one or two packets up and write a personal note to these people. In all honesty, this will probably be the most effective postcards you will send.

Same drill as before – the packets will be out on the front porch (xxxxxxxxxxxx, Sun Prairie).

Gratefully and with hope,

From the SPDAT (Sun Prairie Democratic Action Team) of which I’m a proud member of!

This is reality in the Wild West, folks!

My Day: Educating future nurses by standing in a tent all
Day, giving flu shots through car windows as others swab people for covid... 40 degrees, wind whipping by, no sun, only warmth is car exhaust. Thankful for plastic PPE and gloves and shields to give us protection from all the people who are so ill.. trying to explain how to provide culturally competent care through so many barriers both physical and mental to our future nurses. Many patients in these cars are so sick, they are in tears just waiting their turn.. some of the cars are so packed we have to ask them to step out to be swabbed or to receive their flu shot, which requires them to expose their arm to the bitter cold.

THIS is just the start of harsh weather and our numbers in WI are getting worse everyday. HOW much more of this can we healthcare workers withstand. We are the lucky ones, We test them, and send them on their way. At this point they are Alive. Thats where their journey and the next step of this process begins.

Every one of us is frozen to the bone, working in horrid conditions to serve our communities. If someone had told me even a year ago this would be the new reality I would have laughed.

It is utterly shameful, discraceful and disgusting that there are many who believe this is a hoax. I hold our President fully responsible for what we are living each day. Those of you who CHOOSE to make a joke of a mask, social distancing and make choices because you have the “right to live your life” are just as bad as our mentally ill President. Sleep well, cause one day it will be someone you love who is JUST THE 1% who didn’t survive.

WELL here is Lady Liberty giving him the help he needs!

A psalm for the cult of covidiots!

Great posting from Minocqua Brewery....WTFU Wisconsin!

It has been a sad week in Northern Wisconsin and around the state. Many of us are first starting to hear about people we know dying from Covid, or people dying on a nightly basis in our healthcare facilities.

Before this, it was mainly theoretical. Yes, the numbers, over 200K dead from Covid in America, were astonishing, but were they really real? Wisconsin didn't seem to have it that bad all summer, so were the stats really true?

Hopefully for those who were hesitant to believe the reports from main stream media will start believing them now. It's heartbreaking that is has taken the actual deaths of our neighbors to convince some people up here to take this seriously.

Unfortunately, much of our community STILL doesn't believe that Covid is deadly.

It's surreal. It's truly surreal that faced with the deaths of our neighbors, businesses and customers are still throwing caution to the wind and thumbing their nose at simple things like wearing masks to protect their neighbors.

It is simply surreal that our law enforcement up here, after swearing oaths to protect and serve, refuse to enforce Governor Evers' mask mandate, in the face of actual death from Covid. Even if they issued a few fines, a great many more people would probably get on board.

History books will show that Wisconsin's Republican politicians who sued our Governor every time he tried to protect our citizens put us in more danger than at any other time in our state's history. Moreover our Republican leaders have overseen the biggest misinformation campaign in Wisconsin's history, which has ultimately pitted neighbor against neighbor on stupid things like mask wearing, and now is leading to unnecessary death.

Since it is literally the wild west up here, and no politicians nor law enforcement care to help their constituents, we asked our fans to provide feedback on what businesses were both doing great at following safety protocols and who were not. Of course its not our job to police our community, but Jesus, no one else is taking the lead so we thought we could at least provide information to potential customers up here on places that seemed safe and places that seemed unsafe based on your feedback.

Yes we were called at best, tattletales, at worst, Nazis. We can take it. People are dying, this is much bigger than supporting ALL local small businesses, this is about caring for the health of our neighbors.

What do we hope achieve here?

First, the businesses practicing great safety should be rewarded. Please frequent them and give them your business.

Second, we're hoping the businesses that people mentioned were unsafe will remind them that they are part of a community that depends on them to do the right thing so people don't get sick.

Who are we to suggest we are the appropriate platform for this? We aren't, but no one else is doing it. We've heard about some amazing Platforms coming out of Portage County showing the safe businesses, and that these platforms are gaining traction. We hope someone in our community can run with this and do something similar. Hopefully there is already something up here and we don't even know about it.

So here's our list and a few pictures sent to us. Be safe everyone, and hopefully we can get over this with a vaccine soon and start to heal as communities. Please know that this is by no means exhaustive or scientific. It is just feedback from the responses we got on a post we made several days ago.
